Busy times here in Montreal — the 11th annual Homelessness Marathon took place last week, and it was a pretty spectacular overnight broadcast complete with -20 celsius temperatures and plenty of snow. So much amazing programming focusing on the invisible homeless, abuse, Aboriginal housing, health care, accessible community resources, and oh so much more∑ Big thanks to everyone who participated and the 40+ stations across Canadian that aired segments of the broadcast. Full audio archives up soon on ckut.ca/homeless.
Perhaps as a result of the 3-7am shift I ended up teching during the Marathon, my immune system has kicked out and I’ve been fighting an ugly cold for the past several days∑ Trying to tough it out, as my band is slated to play as part of a very exciting bill on Friday night w/ Mark Molnar and H. de Heutz, both of whom are amazing — will need serious energies to even try to act as a proper opener for such talented folks.
Loud chart returns next week.
